Our Story

Between us, we've been adding flavour to recipes and table tops for over 200 years.


George and Francis French introduce French's® Classic Yellow Mustard® at the St. Louis World's Fair. Served with hot dogs, it was love at first bite.


We start waving our banner of good taste and introduce the bright red pennant as our official French's logo.


Pepper farmer, Adam Estilette, partners with Jacob Frank of Frank Tea and Spice Company, to create a sauce perfectly spiced with the rich flavour of cayenne peppers.


Finally perfected, the first bottle of Frank's® RedHot® is launched and an icon is born.


French's first advertising campaign (although flavour sells itself, of course).


Frank's RedHot is the secret ingredient used in the first ever Buffalo Wings in Buffalo, New York and firmly puts it on the map.


French's mustard available anywhere, at anytime and on anything, thanks to the introduction of our individual squeeze packets.


Moving from glass bottles to squeeze formats, it's now even easier to pour French's over any dish. As if it couldn't get any better, the first Saturday in August is declared National Mustard Day in the US.


The buffalo wing craze explodes and Frank's RedHot launches a pre-made Buffalo Wing Sauce to make it even easier to serve up.


Making it easier to squeeze than ever before, French's debuts a new bottle shape with clean-cap technology. No mess!


Happy 100th birthday to French's Classic Yellow Mustard! 100 years in the game but still loved thanks to its traditional, rich and tangy flavour.


Both Frank's RedHot and French's are acquired by McCormick. We're now proud to offer our foodservice partners a 13-strong flavour range of table top and back-of-house formats.
